And the Winner is ..... Ingrid Knox!

Ingrid's gorgeous white on white cotton table runner won the best handwoven at the Nevada County fair this year.  The draft came from An Introduction to Multishaft Weaving 8,12....20 by Kathryn Wertenberger; page 65.  It was originally from the notebooks of Fred Pennington who started weaving in 1937.  He wove linens and collected drafts from all over the world so I'm sure would have agreed with the judge that this was truely a prize winner.

Here is a close up so that you can see the beautiful structure.

Should you want to weave your very own masterpiece table runner and have loom for it, here is the 16 shaft draft.  You might even rethink this tie up and see if you could come up with an 8 shaft that was similar.
